City To Update Tamarack & Carlsbad Blvd

by The Editors on November 30, 2017

The City of Carlsbad is proposing some pretty nice upgrades to the area around the intersection of Tamarack and Carlsbad Boulevard right about Tamarack Surfing beach. Anyone who has tried to push a stroller or pull a wagon down the sidewalk above the Tamarack parking lot knows that the sidewalk there is way, way too narrow, not to mention that it is nearly impossible to cross Tamarack while walking on the west side of Carlsbad Boulevard. Thankfully, it seems all these problems will be corrected with the new plan. Here are some of the fixes:

  • Widening sidewalks and improving bike lanes throughout the area.
  • Adding new parking spaces on Tamarack Avenue and Carlsbad Boulevard.
  • Getting rid of the asphalt island on the west side of Carlsbad Boulevard and south of Tamarack Avenue.
  • Relocating the bus stops to more accessible locations.
  • Creating more functional space on the ocean side of Carlsbad Boulevard, just to the south of Tamarack, including an overlook with space to sit and enjoy.
  • A new crosswalk across Carlsbad Boulevard south of Sequoia Avenue to the lagoon trailhead.
  • Signs directing people to the Coastal Rail Trail along the railroad tracks between Tamarack and Oak Avenue.

Construction could start in the fall of 2018 and we’re looking forward to it. This will solve so many traffic problems for so many people. And if Carlsbad Boulevard gets cut down to one lane in each direction from The Village to Cannon we’d be even happier. For the official word from the City (including community meeting schedules), please follow the jump.

Carlsbad’s Grocery Bag Couple

by The Editors on November 29, 2017

Carlsbad’s Farzan and Jen Dehmoubed have an idea they think will revolutionize the grocery bag world. They’re called Lotus Trolley Bags and the Orange County Register has the whole story.

The Lotus Trolley Bags are a riff on a popular shopping cart system used in Europe. Rolled up, the bundle is compact and hangs from the grocery cart while you shop. Unspooled, four bags hang from rods inside the cart, open and ready to receive milk, produce, dry goods and more as the cashier rings you up. . . “There are other bags on the market with similar functions but quality and customization to U.S. carts were big factors for us,” they said. “We wanted something that could last hundreds of times and had all the features we were looking for.”

The bag debuted in May and since then the Dehmoubed’s have reportedly sold over 10,000 of them. Not bad at all. Plus, anything is better than plastic, even if it’s costs $30 for four.
